    Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR 120.109(b), the FAA Administrator's 
decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drug testing 
rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the 
entire aviation industry. If the reported random drug test positive 
rate is less than 1.00%, the Administrator may continue the minimum 
random drug testing rate at 25%. In 2014, the random drug test positive 
rate was 0.534%. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will 
remain at 25% for calendar year 2016.
    Similarly, 14 CFR 120.217(c), requires the decision on the minimum 
annual random alcohol testing rate to be based on the random alcohol 
test violation rate. If the violation rate remains less than 0.50%, the 
Administrator may continue the minimum random alcohol testing rate at 
10%. In 2014, the random alcohol test violation rate was 0.106%. 
Therefore, the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10% 
for calendar year 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: If you have questions about how the annual 
random testing percentage rates are determined please refer to the Code 
of Federal Regulations Title 14, section 120.109(b) (for drug testing),
